    Amazing historical tour of Vancouver
    ashxvan, Nov 2019
    I was born and raised in Vancouver and it's embarrassing how much I learned about Vancouver's history on this tour! Our guide was amazing. The ghost stories were spooky and fascinating. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a fun Halloween activity and/or a history lesson!

    It was OK. The stories were interesting and amusing. I enjoyed hearing the historical backgrounds of the buildings. I would have appreciated an up close and personal look into some of these places that the tour guide was talking about. Especially the whimsical narrow store with all of the antiques and second-hand Nik-naks. I understand, however that these were not available to us as they were either closed or open for business with customers in them at the time. It could use a bit more intrigue and scarier stories.

    I took my daughter to the Old Spaghetti factory for dinner, and then we were off to the Gastown Ghost Walking Tour. I was so impressed with our Tour guide, she was exceptionally knowledgeable with the history of the city and made the tour come alive with her storytelling. My daughter and I can't wait to go on the Granville Tour. It is money well spent, and a memory to last forever..... Brenda...
